OMFG Blockbuster Reveal: The Red Hook Mall

This, friends, is the first look at the humongous Red Hook Mall planned by developer Joe Sitt on the site of the former Revere Sugar Dome. This blockbuster comes courtesy of our compadres at Curbed and at Racked, which have full photogalleries of the plans. The details are that it would be 376,000 square feet, the biggest retail development in the city in two decades. It would include, as previously reported a huge BJ’s (about 118,000 square feet). The old brick building in the back would be preserved, presumably in the form of some sort of food court. This, of course, would require city approval and given the nasty relationship between Mr. Sitt and the city in Coney Island…well, one can draw one’s own conclusions. If Mr. Sitt doesn’t make nice in Coney this has an ice cube’s chance in hell. And even if Mr. Sitt does make nice it may still have issues given the revolution it will cause in Red Hook.

    Mr. S. and company have about as much imagination as a cabbage.

    This will never happen as Sitt is a flipper, not a builder. However, I will enjoy watching the red hook artsy fartsy/ old guard faux socialists set get all bent out of shape.
